Description

In this activity, students will use their understanding of mood and tone to create their own haunted house. They will consider how their attitude as creator, as well as choices about music, sound effects, and lighting, will affect these elements. In an extension, students will trade houses with a peer and write a short story about the house, in which they demonstrate how setting affects plot.
